Cairo, Egypt — Reports say Egypt's army chief has made his first public comments since last week's crackdown on supporters of the ousted president.
Abdel Fattah El-Sisi made a speech to military and police officers earlier. He is qouted as saying "There is room for everyone in Egypt."
But he also warned that anyone who resorts to violence would not be tolerated.
Protest marches scheduled for after prayers Sunday in Egypt could add more bloodshed to days of deadly violence in the country.
The Muslim Brotherhood canceled one march, planned for Roxy Square in Heliopolis, a suburb of Cairo. But others planned around the country were still scheduled to go on.
Earlier Sunday, the Muslim Brotherhood announced that all marches would be canceled due to concerns about snipers on routes. The group then issued a new statement saying only one was canceled.
Egypt's interim government, meanwhile, implored the global community to listen to its side Sunday, accusing international media of being sympathetic to supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Members of the Foreign Ministry showed journalists a video-and-photo montage Sunday of recent carnage, blaming terrorists for the chaos.
Morsy supporters say the military-backed interim government instigated the violence that killed hundreds, starting with a dawn raid at two pro-Morsy protest camps last week.
Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy acknowledged the country is in a state of uncertainty. He said the interim government is "trying to identify the political identity so we can move forward."
"We are still open to any ideas or suggestions" from the global community, Fahmy told reporters Sunday. But in the end, "the decision is Egyptian."
Fahmy also said he greatly appreciated the foreign aid that Egypt gets. The United States, for example, gives Egypt more than $1 billion a year.
"We are very thankful for the aid. But it should not be targeted," Fahmy said. "The threat of stopping aid in this period is not acceptable."
Minister of Defense Abdul-Fattah el-Sisi said in a statement Sunday that "Egypt has room for everybody," but "securing the state will remain the main objective and the sole mission of the army, the police and the Egyptian people."
